Dessert refuses to be an afterthought at Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe. More than 30 ice-cream flavors—repeatedly lauded by the Charleston City Paper and Moultrie News—pile atop cones or blend into milk shakes, and classic banana splits make mouths water with their pecans and cherries. The café’s scoops of amaretto cherry or java chunk are generous, living up to the vision of Rod Lapin, who opened the first Ye Ole Fashioned in 1972 with the idea of making customers’ jaws drop at the size of his portions.
Today, at more than half a dozen locations, including one helmed by his daughter Becki and her husband, that hasn’t changed. Ten strips of bacon layer the café’s signature BLTs; chili-laden, all-beef hot dogs weigh down their buns; and the plates are required to start lifting weights regularly before they’re allowed to carry double-decker sandwiches or burgers.
Dr. Patricia Campbell comes from a background of family practice, but it was her interest in beauty that led her to open Springhall Aesthetics in 2011. As medical director, she oversees a menu of minimally invasive body-contouring and skin-renewal services that help clients to fight the signs of aging. Chemical peels, injectable fillers, and laser treatments shoo away wrinkles, and iS Clinical cosmeceutical products leave complexions more subtly radiant than a jar of comets. The clinic's UltraPlus laser hair-removal system not only blasts away unwanted follicles but also assaults spider veins and other colored epidermal imperfections. Upon entering Springhall Aesthetics' charming brick façade, guests stumble into a cozy waiting room anchored by polished hardwood floors. Clients can curl up in one of the lobby's cushy chairs or feed a bag of goldfish to one of the egrets in the serene wall art.

Rickelle Watson Jenkins, owner of My Beautiful BROWZ Waxing Studio, peels away unwanted hair using a gentle zinc oxide–based wax that's great for first-timers and those with sensitive skin or breakouts. For trickier areas, such as the bikini line, Rickelle cracks open a can of titanium blue hard wax fresh from the La Brea Wax Pits. She recalls what first attracted her to the beauty industry—the art of makeup—while touching up lashes, lips, and everything in between, and uses Dermalogica products to cleanse and exfoliate during facials.
At Polished 2 Paint 2 Nails, nail artist Pleshette melts away stresses and strains from hard-laboring digits with soothing manicures and pedicures, made all the more indulgent with extras such as a gentle massage or exfoliating sugar scrub. Her skilled hands add coats of color, which can be made impenetrable by Gelish or Shellac polishes, which leave nails resistant to chips, fading, and late-night infomercial pitches. Pleshette is also joined by other nail techs and skin specialists. Together, they offer many other services, including facials, cosmetics, natural detox body wraps, all natural supplements, and firming creams.
Although they’re greeted by the sound of snipping scissors and the sight of a light-yellow room filled with black leather stylists’ chairs, guests of Natural Image Salon and Day Spa can get much more than just a haircut. In addition to stylists who specialize in creative hair color and keep abreast of the latest trends—such as the feather hair extensions that secret agents use to blend in while spying from trees—Natural Image staffs aestheticians who perform a full range of spa treatments.
These experts dab skin with products made with natural ingredients, relying on botanical plant peels and Swedish body wraps that blend herbs, minerals, and sea clay. As well as pampering skin with Aveda facials and sea-salt-glow exfoliations, the aestheticians render it hairless during waxing sessions. Nail technicians add the final touch to appearances with gel manicures or layers of OPI polish.
